PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

February 10, 2009 -

The PC Gaming Alliance, which welcomed publisher Capcom to its ranks last week, has unveiled a new website.

The updated PCGA home page is definitely an improvement over the original. Randy Stude, PCGA president, commented on the transition: 

Visitors... will see that the PCGA is the place that PC Gaming companies of all types can come together to collaborate to help solve problems that plague our industry. Our membership remains steadfast in the belief that this is vital to ensuring the continued growth and health of PC Gaming globally.

GP: Now if they'd just update their blog once in a while...

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

Anything that can improve the status of PC gaming I'm fully in support of. PC gaming has been sucking lately thanks to the big companies pulling back on resources. I feel jipped. My paid big money for my rig, and honestly its way different than my xbox 360. I guess the piracy bug has really been the driving force behind pc gaming and suckage. Thats too bad. I hope the free pc game model works with Ea's battlefield heroes. Either that or Starcraft will bring PC gaming back to the forefront.

I'm new!

The new design is nice. Now about the DRM assfuckery and key locking...

I see that the PCGA still has their priorities straight. Things they do nothing about:

- Over the top DRMs

- Over the top prices

- Bad ports

- Forced console exclusives

- Bad control of sales (not taking most online sales into account)

Of course, half of their members are PC's worst offenders: Microsoft (monopoly, buying exclusives for xbox, forcing delays in PC release dates, abysmal OS support, PC market rupture with DX9 & DX10...), Intel (integrated graphics chips), Epic (hates PC, why are they even in the PCGA?), ATI  & nVidia (price fixing), etc.

And what do they do?

- A new website

- (every two months, from any member at random) EVERYTHING IS BECAUSE OF PIRACY!!!! PIRACY IS BAD!!!! PIRACY IS KILLING PC!!!!

With these friends, who wants enemies?.

<looks at website, most notably member companies>

I thought the CEO of EPIC said they weren't developing for PC after their UT3 debacle that they blamed on piracy. Doesn't sound like someone I want promoting PC gaming.

Re: PC Gaming Alliance Rolls Out New Website

How about tell devs not to lock keys and ensure all PC games are full customizable control wise..... the port and dumb mentality of modern gaming is making the console version more configurable than the PC version...

NeenekoMakes sense to me, and sounds kinda cool. One cool thing about Minecraft is the meta game, you can implement other game types within its mechanics. There are servers out there with plots, an episodic single player one sound kinda cool12/18/2014 - 11:07am
MaskedPixelantehttps://mojang.com/announcing-minecraft-story-mode/ Umm... what?12/18/2014 - 10:24am
NeenekoThat would make sense. Theaters probably can not afford the liability worry or a drop in ticket sales from worried people. Sony on the other hand can take a massive writeoff, and might even be able to bypass distribution contracts for greater profit.12/18/2014 - 10:03am
ConsterNeeneko: I thought they cancelled it because the major cinema franchises were too scared of terrorist attacks to show the film?12/18/2014 - 9:55am
Neeneko@Wonderkarp - there is still a lot of debate regarding if the movie was a motive or not. Unnamed officials say yes, the timeline says no.12/18/2014 - 9:10am
NeenekoSomething does not smell right though, Sony is no stranger to being hacked, so why cancel this film? For that matter, they are still not giving in to hacker's original demands as far as I know.12/18/2014 - 9:06am
PHX Corp@prh99 Not to mention the Dangerous Precedent that sony's hacking scandal just set http://mashable.com/2014/12/17/sony-hackers-precedent/12/18/2014 - 8:25am
Matthew WilsonI hope its released to netflix or amazon12/18/2014 - 12:11am
prh99Basically they've given every tin pot dictator and repressive regime a blue print how to conduct censorship abroad. The hecklers veto wins again. At least when it comes to Sony and the four major theater chains.12/17/2014 - 11:55pm

Matthew Wilsonapparently tetris did not work because he has a full friends list12/17/2014 - 9:21pm
WonderkarpSo Sony cancelled the release of the Interview. was it ever confirmed that the Sony hacking was done because of that specific movie?12/17/2014 - 8:54pm
MaskedPixelanteWow, Ubisoft went four for four, I didn't think it was actually possible.12/17/2014 - 8:37pm
MechaTama31Oh, ok, I was mixing up "on Greenlight" and "Greenlit".12/17/2014 - 8:23pm
Matthew Wilson@phx you beat me to it. how do you screw up tetris?! my ubisoft this is just stupid. no one should ever preorder a ubisoft game again! ps people should never preorder any game regardles of dev.12/17/2014 - 6:28pm
PHX Corphttp://www.ign.com/videos/2014/12/17/what-the-heck-is-wrong-with-tetris-ps4 I give up on ubisoft12/17/2014 - 6:01pm
MaskedPixelantehttp://comicbook.com/blog/2014/08/16/exclusive-original-unaltered-cut-of-star-wars-trilogy-to-be-rele/ Yeah, this'll never happen.12/17/2014 - 5:03pm
NeenekoThey have and exercise control over which games are allowed on their privately controlled 'open forum'. Their endorsement is fairly minimal since it is only 'we do not reject this', but it is still an endorsement of sorts.12/17/2014 - 3:58pm
NeenekoHistorically there have been issues with libraries allowing some groups but not others. Perhaps 'endorsement' is too strong a word, but their editorial control IS a preapproval process, even if the standards are pretty minimal.12/17/2014 - 3:56pm
E. Zachary KnightLet's put this a different way. My local library allows any group to reserve and use multipurpose rooms. That does not mean that the Library endorses all events that take place in those rooms.12/17/2014 - 12:54pm
